2018 Convention Recap: The 122nd AIIA Convention was held in Alabama for the first time in history and will forever be remembered as a "GRAND".
Past AIIA President Haig Wright's team was "Be Different, Be Grand" and the convention was both. We had a new location, over 100 agents in attendance and remarkable speakers.
We were honored to have our Department of Insurance Commissioner, Jim Ridley who spoke briefly to our Board of Directors on what's happening at the department.
Our welcome reception was held outside with amazing weather, beautiful sunset and great band.
Our Trade Show kicked off Monday morning where over 60 exhibitors were visited by agents from across the state. Immediately following the Trade Show, our attendees were mesmerized by Former SEAL Team Six Leader, Rob O'Neill. Rob is one of the most highly-decorated combat veterans of our time and the author of the New York Times best-selling memoir; The Operator: Firing the Shots That Killed Osama bin Laden and My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior.
Tuesday was a day of business and our guest speaker Tom Doran of Reagan Consulting presented his Industry Insights by focusing on these topics: Competing into the Next Decade, Internal Perpetuation and Developing a World-Class Sales Culture. Click this link for a copy of his presentation!!
Closing out the convention, Internationally know speaker and New York Times Best-Selling Author, Andy Andrews put his real-life situations into ways our attendees could better their agencies and themselves.
